Ahead of the release of Fall Out Boy's brand new studio album 'American Beauty/American Psycho', we've decided to take a look at just five of their songs from their extensive back catalogue that we absolutely adore!

It was a tough decision to make. Having been a huge fan of the group for quite some time, all sorts of titles were flying around in my head - but I've managed to whittle it down to five that'll get your Sunday feeling that little bit better.

1) Thnks Fr Th Mmrs

Perhaps the band's most influential and famous single, 'Thnks Fr Th Mmrs' lit up the radio stations and charts back when it was released in 2007 - almost eight years ago! Today it still sounds as fresh and innovative as ever.

2) The Phoenix

As one of their newer releases, fans thought that Fall Out Boy had a lot to prove when they announced their comeback scheduled for 2013. Some were annoyed that they'd ever left in the first place, and so when 'The Phoenix' dropped and proved they're still the same guys they've always been, and artists who can put together a catchy hit, we were on to a winner.

3) This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race

As the lead single from their third studio album, this one paved the way in 2007 for those that followed, and did so immensely. Patrick Stump and Pete Wentz got together to write one of the most interesting lyrical pieces I had heard in quite some time - and it's still one that will make you think long after listening about the state of the world today.

4) Beat It featuring John Mayer

Covering a Michael Jackson classic is instantly dangerous, and so we're ultimately thankful that it was Fall Out Boy - with the help of John Mayer - that put a unique twist and fun spin on one of the most famous songs in history. It has to be listened to be explained - an absolute marvel.

5) I'm Like A Lawyer With The Way I'm Always Trying To Get You Off (Me & You)

Rounding out our list is another 2007 release, and perhaps the longest song title we've ever seen in our lives. The group's incredible way with words is solidified in a track that may not have done as commercially well as it deserved, but certainly gained the critical praise and love from fans that I imagine it was written with the intention of doing.

Fall Out Boy's new record is released on Monday, January 19.
